WWE, Wednesday Writing Essentials Challenge, 4/3/13, Dreams or Wants

Filed in Gather Writing Essential by on April 2, 2013 0 Comments

This week’s challenge was spurred by Vj McMullan’s suggestion. She asked me not to quote her, so I hope I got this right.

I’m asking you to present a challenge of what your dreams or wants are. Then, under that, write your story, poem or essay as to how you will or have already obtained them. That’s right folks; you’ll be creating not only your own challenge, but also next week’s challenge. Why? Heck, I’m lazy.

I’ll not tell you of next week’s challenge because I could guarantee that a few of you will jump the gun, for no other reason than making me think again.

Here’s an example of what I’m looking for: Write yourself a challenge and then, under your challenge, write your resolution.

Example: The challenge is: I dream/want (enter your words here – no you cannot quote any words in parenthesis). Then, under that challenge, write your story, poem or essay to fulfill (or not) your dream/want.

Example: I dream of becoming a beautiful butterfly.


Story: I emerged from a silk cocoon and found myself worming around, hungry – looking at beautiful butterflies flitting…

Hope this challenge makes sense, because confusion is the next best thing to a good story. (Can’t believe I said that and remember, no words in parenthesis are to be used in your response).

The Rules:

Keep in mind, this is a monitored group and there are only a couple of rules, which are:

Make sure you put this (WWE, 4/3/13, Dreams or Wants) in your title.

Be sure to tag it with WWE, Gather Writing Essentials, Dreams or Wants . Post to Gather Writing Essential.

I ask that you make your submission(s) by next Tuesday afternoon.

There is a limit of three submissions from each member per day. If you’re extremely prolific, spread out your work and post only three submissions per day.

Most important:

Put this challenge statement at the beginning or end of your submission so readers will know what you’re supposed to do and won’t think you’re crazy.

Challenge: Present a challenge of what your dreams or wants are. Then, under that, write your story, poem or essay as to how you will or have already obtained them.


BELOW ARE RESPONSES TO PRIOR CHALLENGES – CHECK THEM OUT.  Please let me know if I missed anyone’s post and I’ll get it linked for next week.
